Saturday

Happy Saturday all. It's been a beautiful, sunny, busy week here, so not much blogging. Random, but I've been thinking a lot about Alexander Calder this week. Probably because Joel pinned a photo of his home, and because our friend commented on the fish Eddie made last summer. So, I've been browsing the Calder Foundation site. I love these archival photos of him and his work...Have a great weekend!

I LOVE Calder. He was my first big inspiration when I started making jewelry. Such a genius with metal. Thanks for sharing these pics Liza.
